Rockfax Description
The first pitch is a fine outing. Start at the bottom of the slab, 6m left of the base of Pegasus' corner.
1) 5a, 30m. Climb directly up the slab to reach the base of the steep headwall. Pull up and gain a left-trending wide break and continue up the wall above on good holds to a small overhang. Pull through the small overhang and ascend directly to a stance and belay on a good ledge below a long chimney.
2) 30m. Climb the chimney and easier ground above to the top. © Rockfax

Paul Sagar 19 Jun Lead O/S A beast! Powerful moves on the head wall, very glad I had my jamming gloves on or I would have logged some big air time. Made it extra spicy by going left after the crux so no good rest (Khalid smartly went right on second!) Upgraded to E1 in CC - probably fair. Both soloed the second pitch to save time.

natalio 26 May, 2013 AltLd O/S Interesting crux. Did in 2 pitches. I did p2, which is just an easy climb. Chris did p1, which gets gradually harder until it reached the overhanging crux, after which it remains sustained for two moves, which makes it quite challenging.

monsteratt 12 Oct, 2010 AltLd O/S Lead p2 although opted to try out a different route as didn't fancy the chimney. CLimbed a crack just left of the line of Seal slab, which was good to start then got very green, but was quite enjoyable all the same. P1 was good some amazing hold on the steep face above the slab. Pretty pumpy
